1916 to 1940 Ensembles and Orchestras

Samuel was a member of a number of Ensembles during his performing days. He stopped collating press cuttings in 1936 and his collection of concert programs dwindles as 1940 approaches. Consequently the dates of when he stopped playing with the various Ensembles are not accurate, but are merely the year of the last archive reference available.
